Domaine Henri Delagrange Puligny Montrachet 2018
Based in Volnay, the Delagrange Family owns vineyards located amongst the best terroirs of the Côtes de Beaune. The Estate is run by Didier Delagrange, 6th generation, and the vines are located in dream appellations : Volnay, Pommard, Aloxe-Corton, Meursault and Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune.
In the vineyard, Didier only uses organic vine and soil preparations, and encourages soil and vine health by plowing between rows. Careful, rigorous care of the vines with grapes picked perfectly healthy and at the right moment.They believe in the importance of understanding each vintage to preserve the natural balance of the wine and to maintain the traditional character of the wine by intervening as little as possible during vinification.
